If you have decent background knowledge of crimes in Melbourne it probably isn't worth your time. There are cheaper options such as visiting the Gaol, going on the free walking tours, watching Underbelly and visiting the Police Museum and Melbourne Museum. The tour itself was actually fine, just pushing it at the price.

This tour was everything I thought it would be. Did not disappoint. Our tour guide Daniel, was very nice and knew his stuff. I probably didn't learn anything new as I have read almost every true crime book, but it was just really interesting to see where these terrible crimes actually took place. Drinks were provided and there were enough... More

My husband and I are great fans of Underbelly series so thought this would be fun. Our tour guide was fantastic and it was obvious he really enjoyed his weekend job!! Lots of interesting crime stories and the discounted ticket to the Old Melbourne Gaol was appreciated. Loved the brown paper bag treats!

My husband and I had a great time on this very interesting tour, Even though we live in Melbourne we learnt lots of new and interesting facts about our city. Travis was our guide and he was great, he made us feel we were the only ones on the tour, with his friendly and informative manner.

I booked this tour manly for my boyfriend who is really into the gangland stories of Melbourne. My knowledge about it was average but that really didn't matter cos our tour guide Travis was a great story teller. Not only was the stories interesting but at the same time we got to see a lot of Melbourne.
